  1. In any given programs there is the ability to crop the canvas, however in Affinity Designer you have to go all the way to the Document Setup and do the guess work if you're cropping at a specific size. Is there any possible ways to crop the canvas on the canvas itself, like in Photoshop or Illustrator you can just resize the canvas with the artboard tool, however that doesn't seems to be the case in Affinity Designer, unless I am missing something here. Thanks!
  2. I started using Photo 1.7.0.243 So far my issues / comments are: 1) My Canon 77D is now meant to be included in this release yet RAW photos are not visible as thumbnails when I try to 'open' a folder. Am I missing something? This is the main reason I thought I'd try out the beta version. 2) The hand tool used to increase / decrease the image size when twirling the mouse dial, now it moves the image around. Is this a permanent change? 3) Cropping no longer has presets. Do I need to set these up & if so, how? Basic ones like 2:3 & 1:1 would be useful. I haven't done much yet so might add some more comments later. Thanks Julie.
  3. Good morning, It looks to me (maybe I'm wrong) that is not possible to set some default settings to the crop tool. I'd like for example to have it always set on "Original Ratio" and with the "Darken Border" always checked, in order to speed up a basic process like cropping a bunch of catalog photos. I've found this intuitive option in every processing software I've used so far but can't figure it out here. Any ideas? If such a thing doesn't exist for AP it would be awesome to have it ASAP since it'll speed up the workflow, especially when working on several images. Thanks
  4. Hi. Affinity photo on MacBook pro. i am a new user trying out affinity photo before moving from LightroomCC so bear with my lack of knowledge. i have opened a raw file, processed, then developed. i am trying to crop before proceeding. The crop tool shows on pic with the move nodes on corners and on lines. when cursor hovers over nodes I get the double arrow indicating I can crop but when I click and drag nothing happens, the cursor just turns into a cross with arrows. it has worked on a previous picture but........ i have switched of Mac and rebooted but no change. help! peter
  5. Hi! I understand through quick online searching that it is possible to create bleeding edges on Affinity Designer. Is this possible on Affinity Photo? I can't seem to find out how.
  6. I'e set up a document wich should have bleed/crop marks on every edge with 3mm inset. If I export that as pdf and include the marks, only the top and bottom marks are placed correctly. The left and right are placed exactly where the document ends, but they should be inset my 3mm. If I set the bleed marks to 6mm, they same happens. Top and bottom marks are set correctly, left and right are not inset at all. (see screenshots) This bug happens on new documents, two different macs and even on iPad. The same behavior is for Affinity photo and Affinity Publisher beta.
  7. I do repetitive tasks where I have scans that need to be resized and cropped to a specific dimension. In my previous program (you know the one) I would set the px to 500 x 668 in the crop size boxes and so when I cropped it was already the correct size for me. So I guess it was resizing and cropping at the same time. I can't see how to do this on Affinity. I am so used to doing things this way I cannot even work out how to do it a long way round. If I crop first I crop it to the wrong aspect ratio and then when I resize to my specific dimensions I am distorting the image. Help me please! I am very new to this program, I would like to be able to use it but this is my first brick wall that could potentially destroy my resolution to free myself from 20 years of dependence to a company who don't give a flick about me!

    Crop tool

    The escape key doesn't cancel out of the crop function on my 2017 15" TouchBar MBP. It would be great if it did, or if you added a Cancel button on the TouchBar. Thanks for all you do!
  9. I see new versions are on their way. I am excited, but then I think about the one tool I want and desire and become sad knowing it won't be present.... most likely. Please gods of Affinity.... Give me a DESTRUCTIVE crop (or at the least an option when cropping)! Rasterizing is NOT an option. Sometimes, I just want to get rid of stuff not mask and hide it. So, please please please please please please please please please give us the ability to destructive crop. Thank you.
  10. Hello, There's been a lengthy discussion about it already. But it's perhaps in the wrong channel? I hope it's ok that I brought it over to the Feature Request channel It would be great for productivity to have a crop to selection function. Thank you
  11. Hey everyone, glad to be part of this community! I just started using affinity photo on my iPad Pro. I simply want to crop an image to a custom size ratio (eg. 1x1) and add a frame to it. Right now I crop the image first and then I change the canvas size and add a new layer to create the canvas but... I am not able to anchor the crop tool to the borders of the image When I crop the image, the uncropped part remains underneath and I cannot create the framing all around it Setting the canvas size is quite a mess I would really appreciate everyone's help :) Nick
  12. In Affinity Photo, is it possible to crop an image automatically, like GIMP's auto-crop feature? I'm editing screenshots of an application (see the attached) - I take these with OS X's screenshot feature, roughly dragging around the application window, then want to crop it to retain just the window - removing the dark grey bit in the attached example. The background's all the same colour. GIMP's auto-crop feature removes a same-colour border from an image. Does Affinity Photo having anything similar, or do I have to use the crop tool and select the application window by hand? Thanks.
  13. Just wondering if there is a tool in Affinity Photo to crop a photo to a circle shape.
  14. Hi - this may be fixed in 1.7 but in 1.6.7 there is undocumented behaviour displayed by the crop tool. Specifically, some ratios retain their proportions when resized, others don't as follows: Shipped: 1 : 1 - Y 5 : 7 - Y 8 : 10 - Y 6" x 4" - N 8.5" x 11" - N 1024px x 728px - N 16:9 - N Custom: 4 : 3 - Y 16 : 9 - N (note spacing alteration to match other menu items) 16:9 - N Frustratingly there is no way (that I can find) of constraining the 'N' items using keystroke additions. If I've missed something glaringly obvious here my apologies! Thanks - Nick
  15. Hi all. If I convert a file from RAW in Photo then use a plugin filter (NIK, Topaz etc) any crop I have added is lost. Even if I convert then crop in Photo the crop is still reset to the original proportions in the filter. See the screenshots for examples cos it's kinda hard to write about while listening to Pretty Fly (for a white guy) loud! Do others see this?
  16. Hi! Does anyone know how to create a Phi Grid (based on the Golden Ratio) overlay in Affinity Photo? (The Golden Ratio is divides the frame into sections resulting in a grid that is 1:0.618:1). I want to use that overlay for composition and cropping. I know we already have a Golden Spiral, but I like the Phi Grid for landscapes and other types of images. For more basic info on the Golden Ratio you can check this article, specifically for photography: https://www.apogeephoto.com/how-to-use-the-golden-ratio-to-improve-your-photography/ Thanks!
  17. Hi, I would love you to consider adding a Phi Grid as an additional option to the existing cropping overlays. As you probably know, it is based on the Golden Mean just like the Golden Spiral but I find it more useful than the later for landscapes and other types of images. Thanks for all the outstanding work you are doing!
  18. Each time the Crop Tool is selected, the Mode menu always opens with Unconstrained. If I am cropping a number of open photographs to, say, 6x4, I need to re-select the required ratio for each photograph. I would love to see a feature that allows the selected Crop Ratio to be remembered - each time another photograph is selected. I would also love to see the selected Crop Ratio to be remembered between each Affinity Photo session. Such a feature would significantly improve workflow when the same crop ratio is applied to a series of photographs.
  19. After using crop tool on 'main' view do cedrease width of the image 'new view' has been rotated upside down. Whed edited, new view was updated accordingly taking into accout its rotation. See animated git in attachment and saved Affinity Photo file. vnt_ico.afphoto
  20. The Place Image Tool is very handy but it lacks one essential thing: to be able to CROP the image by holding a modifier key, say ⌘-Shift I know this is possible with the Picture Image Tool but that is too much workaround
  21. I don't have time to search entire forums or the interwebs to see if someone else has ever suggested this feedback before. So I offer my apologies if my suggestions have already been covered. 1) Please can you provide a feedback function WITHIN the application it self. It's incredibly frustrating to have to use out dated methods of signing up to god-awful web-forums which just leads to nonconstructive replies of un-thought out opinions and arguments. It also allows you to correctly link feedback (and abuse) to the software license of the user and even categorise the feedback so you can easily see which areas are causing most concern to the user base. 2) Please can you fix the mouse icon when painting in masks in the develop mode. The standard OS mouse icon does not feel accurate to paint with. Also a nice to improve if possible: Painting often feels sluggish to see the red tint forming. If there is a way to make this feel more responsive without upgrading an existing 32GB RAM I7 processor machine, that would be lovely please. 3) Cropping in Develop mode is missing an "ok" or "finished" button. It's frustrating to be sitting back with my tablet, controlling everything then having reach over to the keyboard which I moved to one side, just to hit <enter>. I don't want to map the enter key to my tablet device as it's never used for anything else! if you simply put a button in the UI it will mean I can just move the mouse there and click! perhaps I've missed a trick that does what I want, but then that would mean it's not obvious and intuitive to the user. 4) Please update the flash function for uploading files on this forum. Who runs flash in 2017? Browsers auto block flash from running by default because it's nasty. 5) More of a question then a suggestion, but is there a way to rename the overlays in the Overlays tab in Develop mode? I have 3 gradient overlays, all with the same name! that's very confusing to simple minds like myself. 6) Although I generally hope you spend more time fine tuning what you have already developed, instead of just rushing out new features, it would be nice if there was an in-application function for browsing image files, with a nice big preview of the image and EXIF data, which you can then double click to open it in the develop mode. I don't think anyone wants all this "importing" and cataloguing rubbish which is very slow. But browsing files within Affinity with a UI that suits photographers that windows/macOS don't offer, would be a great win. Thanks for your time.
  22. First of all, you guys are amazing. Your programmers and designers have done an incredible job on building Affinity. Look like after 15 years of retouching in Photoshop I am finally going to switch because you have the tools I wanted Photoshop to have but never had, more humane and thoughtful approach to the overall design and much better performance. Now onto important requests. All these are not just vanity features but those that I came across using very often during my retouching works. - add an aspect ratio shortcut Alt or Ctrl to image cropping. I know you have a dropdown, but it doesn't help much. Choosing the right crop and composition is often a multistep process, adjusting it with an aspect ration, then correction a bit without it the on/off etc. It has to be easy to use shortcut to make it flexible. - Path blur. A complex feature, I know. something that blurs along a curve or several parallel or converging curves with adjustable speed setting on ends and along the curve. Very important for automotive photography retouching. - Same but an elliptic curve with multiple adjustable ellipses. - please add blending to dust and scratches. Right now the results are pretty rough just like in photoshop. Could be something similar to the healing algorithm, where the texture is taken from the surrounding areas, or at least some simple pixel blend to remove the rough edges and artifacts around the remove dust/scratches. - Basic metadata edit. Title, description, keywords, copyright. It's important to have it within the same software. I tried to use separate software for that but that makes it a two step process. Photoshop's metadata editor is fine but is missing spellchecking. Opening the GPS location with google maps in a browser would be handy too. Easy to implement I think. Please consider. - an option to have the layer on/off checkbox on left Thanks a lot. Keep up the great work. Will recommend you to all my colleagues. Alex
  23. Have been a loyal Photoshop fan since version 1, but now that I'm retired but active, the price is out of reach. In searching for alternative tools, found Affinity Photo and I love many aspects of it. HOWEVER, I've run into a couple of peculiarities that I cannot seem to work around. What I'm trying to do is create .png elements that I can combine as web elements to build up a composite image for customers to create their own version of my product. (Think, changing colors on a car image - sort of like that.) Problem is some of these elements are ovals of differing sizes that must come together concentrically on the website. So, I am attempting to use the crop tool to create transparent background .PNG files and it ain't working as (I think) it should. Here goes: 1. Cropping leaves a ghost line around the cropped area unless I find a way to make that area transparent first. 2. Using the crop preset - I create a crop area and save that as a preset. The area is in the center of the drawing. When I recall the preset, it is justified to the upper left corner. Getting it back to dead center is nearly impossible and my images never align. 3. Aside for the misalignment issue from #2, if I use the preset on two different .bmp images, then export them as .png, they do not retain the relative size - one is larger than it should be. Here are 3 bitmap images produced by my CAD. They are exactly the same size, 1387x983 px. The first one is an oval board with blue place holders for two overlay tracks, the 2nd and 3rd files. BTW, on the toolbar it says that all 3 are represented at 84 - shown here. So, I remove all but the tracks on the 2nd and 3rd files to create the overlays as .png files, attached. Then, when I "place" these two back onto the board graphic, it seems to work. Here's the problem. When I crop these 3, I must recenter the crop tool each time and cannot make it exact with my eye. The result is that the .png files I create for each is slightly on a different center and the overlays don't line up properly, as shown in Sample Board - Cherry with 2 tracks Thoughts? Sample Board - cherry.bmp Sample Inner Track.bmp Sample Outer Track Maple.bmp
  24. Newbie here. I notice that when I use the crop tool to straighten an image or remove parts of an image, it lists in the history the various steps that I have taken. For example, I perform the following using the crop tool, and the corresponding data is shown in the history. Change mode of crop (to 16:9) Constrain Crop Pan around Pan Crop Resize Resize Crop Rotate Rotate Crop etc. Then, when I click apply, all of that history is erased and replaced by "Raster Crop." It appears that only one action has been take on the image. Is it possible to undo each of the steps that make up that change. If I click Undo (or go back a step), I have to start from scratch. I would rather be able to back up a step or two, like to after I did the Pan Crop (in the above example), and then do the Resize and Rotate again. Thanks for your help.
  25. When I have rotated a shape - or whatever - I sometimes want to crop it in relation to the page but can't find a way of doing it. (Think of the scalpel blade going down or across the page rather than at the same angle as the object.) I can reset the selection box so I can manipulate the shape that way but it would be nice if I could reset the crop box in the same way. Consider the attached image: A. Draw a rectangle. B. Rotate it - the selection handles "follow" the shape. C. Press "Reset Selection Box" and the selection handles move to a box that surrounds the rectangle in the same orientation as the page rather than the rectangle. D. Use the Crop tool but I can't find a similar way to reset the crop tool - to the dotted red line - so I could, for instance, cut off a corner of the rectangle. Is there a function I don't know about or, if it's not currently possible, a way to reset the rotation of an object without actually rotating it back? I know I can put the rotated object inside an 'invisible' shape but then I can't easily move the 'crop'. I found a way of doing what I want by adding a small non-rotated object to the rotated object but this seems like a bit of a hack.
